The Big Five series

Started this with a shot of a flat top forest that I took above the Ngorongoro Crater (Tanzania, Africa), to which I added two layers of mottled green grunge. All of that became the background for the elephant who was shot in Seregeti National Park. Then I used another layer of that flat top forest grunge on top and erased a bit of it off the elephant.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
